Went there for lunch & was very pleased with my tuna melt sandwich. My cookie was not too bad either. Their bakery items looked good, but I did not try any.

Wife and I ate there on a Saturday and had Manhattan clam chowder and chicken salad with Viking bread described as a multi grain, bread was great, soup and chicken were good, it's kind of a serve yourself type place in an old downtown bldg with a neat atmosphere. There was a line of about 7 people in frt of us to order and with 3 cashiers it still took maybe 15 minutes or more to order but once you finally got to your table it didn't take long to get your food. They also sell many baked goods and I tried to buy a loaf of the Viking bread to take home but was told I'd have to stand in the same line as before. They need a separate cashier for take outs but over it was a good experience and will go back

We're glad you enjoyed your lunch at Merridee's. The Manhattan Clam Chowder is a great choice, and the Chicken Salad Sandwich is a perennial favorite. Saturday lunch can be busy, but our team works hard to make sure everyone has a chance to order and get their food in a timely manner. Thanks for your nice review, and we look forward to your next visit.

This is a busy place, it feel like the whole town line up for their breakfast here...
The smell of fresh baked goods, steeming coffee bacon, eggs... One word home !
We were there with friends for breakfast and we really enjoyed it. Breakfast burritos were very well done from scratch with fresh ingredients. Felt like breakfast at the farm !
All ot it in a casual atmostphere. Best cinnamon rolls i ever had.
If you are in for a day in Franklin this should be your starting point !

Wow! What a nice review of breakfast at Merridee's. Thank you so much. We love being the go-to place for so many of our Franklin neighbors and out-of-town guests. Whether you're hungry for a plate full of traditional breakfast foods or a breakfast burritos, or you prefer to start your day with a fresh-baked pastry like our cinnamon rolls and a hot cup of coffee, we've got it all. Thanks for your nice review, and we hope we'll see you again soon.

I am from out of town and heard about this place from other people. We went there for lunch and it was very busy. It's a very casual atmosphere and they are very efficient at getting the food out so the wait isn't too long. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to you. The desserts are a must. Everything is home made and from scratch. Be sure and take some of the bakery items for later. :)

Thanks for coming in for lunch. We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and your dessert. And your tip for taking a baked item (or two) home to enjoy later is a good one. Thanks for stopping in, and for your nice review. We hope to see you again sometime.

Excellent choices for lunch. Have never done breakfast...are they open for breakfast? Soup, salads, sandwiches, quiche..they have it all. You order at the counter and then squeeze into little tables but fun and everyone is friendly. Lots of locals eat here. Prices are good too.

We are definitely open for breakfast! Made-to-order omelettes, breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, and we haven't even mentioned the pastries. We hope you'll stop in soon for breakfast. And you're always welcome back for lunch anytime.
